Purple bowls or plates - Scandi?
« on: November 17, 2012, 07:46:26 AM »
I've been down in the basement (an unusual feature of houses in Australia) to find some long-neglected treasures. This shallow bowl or deeply dished plate is one from a pair we acquired years ago. We have no recollection of where or when we found them or how much we paid. They are each about 25.5cm in diameter by just over 5cm high and weigh around 950g.

If nothing else, this query and a few others to follow will show the by-ways of earlier directions in a collecting experience. These days we focus on studio glass by local artists and those who have influenced them. But it would be nice to know these old friends better, so any help with identification will be greatly appreciated.

Not sure if mine is going to help much , I too have no idea who made it.

It's larger and the dimensions are approx. 37cm by 32 cm and the diameter of the foot of the bowl underneath is 8.3 cm or 3 1/4 inches.

The only practical use for it, that I could think of , is to put a dipping sauce in the middle and lots of nibbles around the rim  :)
